Flexible assembly concept
ifp consulting developed a flexible, future-oriented and detailed assembly concept for a drive manufacturer. In the first project phase ifp consulting designed an assembly concept for a well-established and continuously growing manufacturer of door drives with a high variety in its product portfolio. Based on the assembly concept, a new production hall with an assembly line was planned in detailed.
Focal points during the concept phase
Recording and analysis of the current assembly processes as well as supporting processes
Analysis of all data relevant for the assembly process, e.g. product-based bill of materials, assembly instructions, production volumes, setup and lead times
Examination of the infrastructural possibilities to realize the project
Development of several block layout variants and submission of a substantiated recommendation
Typical questions during the detailed planning phase
Which explicit product types are to be manufactured in which number and which production depth in the new production hall and which product types remain in the existing facilities.
How is the material supplied?
Which overall capacity results from the new setup with two assembly halls?
How much personnel and equipment is required?
How is the logistical link between the two halls and their respective assembly lines?
How can future increases in the production volume be realized and how can the assembly be designed so that it meets future requirements?
How can a flexibility regarding fluctuations in the production volume of individual product types be assured?
What does the detailed assembly and hall layout look like?
